Hi Alena,

Happy to hear you're enjoying Rise! 🎉 It's quickly becoming my favorite authoring tool -- there's a lot to love!

Can you tell me more about how you plan to use the Rise courses outside of an LMS?

If you don’t need to track learners’ progress or completion data, you can export a Rise course as Web-Only output and host it on a web server. 

One big difference is when a Rise course is hosted in an LMS, learners can exit and resume with their progress intact. The course will automatically pick up where they left off. Web-only courses will always start over at the beginning.

I look forward to seeing what other community members will add here!

Hi Alyssa,

Many thanks for your reply.

The thing is that we currently host our eLearning courses on a web server, but as using an LMS before I can see the benefits of it.

However, we are not ready yet to invest into an LMS and was wondering if there is a way to track learner's progress or gather any kind of completion data without an LMS?

Thank you

Hi Alena,

I'll be curious to hear what other community members can share! I know with Storyline, folks had looked at using Javascript to report information to Google Sheets, but I've yet to see a similar example with Rise. 

Keep us posted if you find a solution that fits your needs, I'm sure it'll help someone else who may be in the same boat!

I would like to give a +1 to the question about using cookies to let the learner keep track of their progress (so that it doesn't start from the beginning everytime the learner leaves and comes back to the Rise-content when published and used outside an LMS). I'm not really interested in being able to track the progress from an admin side, more that the progress should be saved for the user.

Is this something that is on the roadmap for development?

+1 on cookies. We're confronted with a limited LMS with a clunky user experience when launching SCORM courses. 

We have tons of courses on the LMS and want to use Rise to build new hire curriculum. If we host the curriculum (Rise) on the LMS and that Rise course launches other courses from the LMS it is not a good learner experience. As we use the SCORM courses across many curriculums it would not be sensible to have multiple versions of each of these courses for the applicable curriculums. 

So we're launching the Rise curriculum from our web server and aren't able to track progress... Cookies would significantly improve our learner experience.
